In my last post I mentioned that I was going to attend a Zoom class where I could use some of my dyed elements. Well, I also took another Zoom class on Friday.
The first class I took was with Maureen Glickman called Creative Fabric Collage. I’ve always loved her work.
She included a kit with the class. I ordered the turquoise one, and it had so many beautiful pieces to play with, and to add to my stash. I rarely use anything except what I’ve dyed or printed, but it was fun to use her different pieces.
One of the fun things we did was add foil to fabric. I’ve done this before, but it sure was fun to see how she used the foil. I think I’ll sew around the heart and the dots and make it into a small art piece.
Here is my finished piece. It’s kind of wonky, but looking forward to working more with tulle. I have lots of ideas for using her tips in this class.
If you are interested in taking this class, Marlene is offering another Creative Fabric Collage Zoom class on May 22. You can find out more information here. If you decide to take the class, tell her you heard about it from me.
The second Zoom class I took was Surface Design Techniques: Koos van den Akker Style. Judy Gelzinis Donovan taught this class. I took another one of her Zoom classes earlier this year on making cloth out of doilies. Here is my post about that class. When I found out she was going to teach another class, I just had to take it.
We spent all day sewing, learning a variety of techniques to add to clothing or art quilts. Here are a few of my samples I made in this class. I was familiar with a couple of the techniques, but I learned several tweaks that improved what I already knew. And then I was introduced to new stuff. She even covered two tools that I’ve had in my stash for over 25 years, and never knew how to use!!
If you’re interested in taking the class I took back in March called Creating New Cloth From Old Lace, Judy is offering it again on June 12. Here is a link to her class.
Now I need to clean up my studio, and finish some other projects. Hope you are having a good weekend.
